Big Cat Carcass on Borneo road

Thursday, November 6, 2008
Borneo Bulletin

Motorists often see roadkills during long journeys. However, Dayang Naziah Yusof came across an unusual roadkill on her way back home from Miri.

When she stopped her vehicle near the Sungai Tujoh control post, she was surprised to discover the carcass of what appeared to be a big cat , perhaps a rare leopard.

Assuming that the animal had been run over by a car, she moved the carcass to the side of the road so that other vehicles will not run over it.

After the discovery yesterday morning, she planned to call the Brunei Museums Department to notify them of the animal. She hopes that the animal’s body will be preserved.
